Let's Talk Fanworks (#FanWorksTaughtMe)

I've mentioned in the past that I appreciate fanfiction. I like to read it and I like to write it. (Side note: There is a link to my FanFiction.net profile on the right sidebar, or you can click here.)

While taking a stroll through the Tumblrverse the other day (yes, I do that frequently as well), I came across a post made by the Harry Potter Alliance (HPA).

This particular post explains that the HPA has begun a new campaign to defend fanworks, including fanfiction and fanart. The campaign's website, Fair Works Are Fair Use, has been set up to protect fanworks in copyright conflicts and other legal guidelines. The HPA also created the hashtag #FanWorksTaughtMe so that darling fans such as you and me can express our love for fanworks via social media platforms (like Blogger).

So, what's my excuse? Well, #FanWorksTaughtMe that creativity has no limit, and that the admiration I feel for certain books, films, and other franchises doesn't have to have bounds either. And, even better, there are other people who feel the same way I do about this.

If you agree with the campaign, use the hashtag #FanWorksTaughtMe! Don't forget, you can visit the Harry Potter Alliance at the links below:
